July Talk, in the midst of a cross-Canada tour, at the West End Cultural Centre in Winnipeg. Mise en Scene and The Noble Thiefs opened.
Fronted by Peter Dreimanis and Leah Fay, the band released its debut self-titled album in the fall of 2012 on White Girl Records. You can hear it at the July Talk bandcamp page.
Reviewing an Oct 20 2012 Toronto July Talk show, Tiana Feng in Exclaim! wrote, “The two [Dreimanis and Fay] knew exactly how to captivate the audience and played off each other with perfect chemistry. Themes of masculinity versus femininity, not to mention love and hate, were organically displayed. Dreimanis’s seemingly whisky-soaked voice and Fay’s Amy Milan-like soft tone only added to the drama. Their bandmates were not forgotten and were often included in some angry and flirty moments. Though July Talk were quite theatrical, it all appeared spontaneous and not rehearsed.”
